DMC 2017

Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) will be held December 4-7, 2017 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida.

The DMC Conference will be conducted simultaneously with the Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Conference. You will also be able to attend the concurrent DMSMS Conference at no additional expense, giving you access to more technical information for the same travel cost. The expanded Exhibit Hall will include all the leading organizations from both the DMC and DMSMS communities. Agenda, registration, and lodging information will be posted on this website.
